Kia cee’d facelift; latest spy shots
Kia cee’d to receive a facelift this fall. A heavily camouflaged prototype spotted at the very famous Nurburgring in Germany.
This year marks three years since Kia first introduced the five-door cee’d hatchback to consumers in Europe. Created especially for European consumers, Kia’s new C-segment model marked a major turning point in the history of Korean second largest carmaker. The cee’d has been the first-ever Kia model that was designed, engineered and manufactured in Europe.
It’s also the first Korean car that received maximum five stars at EuroNCAP crash tests and has made the finals of European Car Of The Year (COTY) awards. And the list of accolades does not end here.
And now, three years since its introduction, the impressive Kia cee’d is coming in for a mid-cycle facelift. Spied while testing on the very famous Nurburgring, these latest spy shots reveal the 2010 cee’d will receive a plethora of exterior styling tweaks.
In front, the cee’d is expected to get a whole new front fascia, including Kia’s H-shapped signature grille and redesigned headlights, while changes at rear are foing to include a pair of subtly redesigned tail-lights. The interior is also expected to benefit from a mid-cycle refresh with an emphasis on quality to make the model even more appealing for the customers in Europe.
The 2010 Kia cee’d facelift will make its official European premiere at the upcoming Frankfurt Motor Show this fall, with sales projected to commence shortly afterwards. [Source: Autovandaag.nl]
